General guidelines:

  • All abstracts must be submitted via EasyChair platform. 
  • Authors will receive an automatic confirmation once an abstract is submitted.
  • All abstracts will be reviewed by the Scientific Committee. Confirmation of the status/form of the presentation will be sent once the review process is complete but no later than June 1, 2022 Extended till June 8, 2022.
  • Authors are asked to state their format preference as part of their online abstract submission, however final decisions regarding presentation type rest with the Scientific Committee. 
  • After the abstract is accepted, the presenting author is expected to register and pay the fee by June 15, 2022 (Extended till June 22, 2022) otherwise the Scientific Committee reserves the right to withdraw the abstract from the Abstract Book. It is also expected that the presenting author would attend the PPA European Meeting (live or virtually) and do a presentation at the event. 
  • There is no limit on the number of abstracts that an individual may co-author, however each person may be the first author of a maximum of two abstracts. 
  • If an abstract submission confirmation email or an abstract status notification email is not received, we advice to check a spam folder first. If emails are not found there, we ask authors to contact PAA Conference Secretariat at . 

Guidelines for submission:

  • All abstracts must be submitted and presented in clear English with accurate grammar and spelling of a quality suitable for publication. We recommend that a native English speaker should edit each abstract before submission.
  • Please include full name (not initials) of each author so that an accurate index could be produced. If the author is on more than one abstract, please make sure that the name and affiliation is identical in each abstract, so that all abstracts could be indexed to the same name.
  • To be accepted, the abstract must contain a clear statement of purpose, provide essential new information, including results of the investigation and conclusion(s), and address the importance of the findings for paleopathology. An abstract must include clear evidence that data have been analyzed and results have been obtained. Occasionally it is appropriate for abstracts to be submitted which do not include results but which are synthetic in nature. In general, however, abstracts are to present new results.
  • The abstract should include an introduction, clear statement of the problem, and the hypotheses. Please note the materials and methods which have been employed. However, tables or figures shall not be included. Please also avoid superscripts and subscripts, special symbols and formatting wherever possible. Please do not include references.
  • Choose abstract classifications that best match your topic.
  • The funding citation is entered separately from the body of the abstract and is limited to 30 words. This entry should be limited to funding agencies.
  • The abstract itself should not exceed 250 words. Keywords are limited to 5.
  • Please follow the formatting carefully with respect to font type and size, capitalization, bold and italics.
  • After submission abstract content and other details can be changed until April 30, 2022 (Extended till May 7, 2022). Please login to EasyChair to update your abstract.
